regulations and taxes and union work rules that increase the cost of housing. that would be a better way to get affordable housing, not bringing back this redevelopment agency with its legacy of driving african americans out of the fillmore and they had slated more than half the bay area for redevelopment before they were shut down. >> anything you'd like to add, peter? >> there's a number of assertions from my opponent that are based in a misunderstanding how affordable housing works in san francisco in this particular measure. unfortunately there's not enough time to tackle all of them, but i want to make clear this is not subsidizing middle income home owners. this is going to go primarily for low and very low householders in san francisco. that has always been the programmatic focus because you can leverage funding. we live in a high income market and that is exactly why we have an affordable sector in this city. when it comes it recreating redevelopment, that's a fallacy. it's about recognizing that redevelopment allowed a certain portion of money to be used for redevelopment. it's

nothing is done before january 1st, we are going to see taxes rise on most people because that's the end of the payroll tax cut that president obama and congress agreed to. that also means that the end of the bush tax cuts, not only for people over $250,000 of income, but also everybody else who were to some extent, their taxes were also reduced by the bush tax cut. the alternative minimum tax, that also would kick in. there's no alternative to the alternative minimum tax on the table. so you have the typical family after january 1st seeing a tax hike in the range of $1500 to $3500 for the year 2013. now, i expect congress is going to do something, if it doesn't act before january 1st, it's probably going to act sometime in january and then make what they do retroactive to january 1st. >> all right. looking at the long-term and the short-term. we're going to know what those jobs numbers are tomorrow. great to see you, as always. thank you. >> thanks, thomas. >> so just to point out again, we are awaiting for live remarks from the president as he disembarks from the plane there in

tax increases. in a way that helped the people of the state create more jobs. he did it with overwhelmingly in a state where democrats controlled the legislature. he brought people together. he can do exactly what the president promised he would do four years ago and has failed to do on the economy and bringing people together. mitt romney can do it. he's done it in the private sector and as a chief executive at the state level. he can do it for america. and i think in wisconsin, iowa, ohio, we respect that and we want that from our leader. >> and one last quick one. i'm not going to ask you about ohio. everybody does and i'm not. i want to though about iowa. rasmussen likely voters today. romney 49, obama 48. i don't think the republicans have carried iowa since 1492. can you actually win in iowa? this could be huge. >> i think so. i just -- on a person a note, i was born in colorado springs, i lived in iowa until i was in third grade and spent the rest of my life in the great state of wisconsin. i lived in now 00 third of all the battleground states in america. and each of

vivid for the american voter? >> sandy has cast a people in sharp relief. on one hand, tax cuts for the wealthiest. on the other hand, disaster relief for you and your family when you need it. very clear. i want to tell you that my heart goes out to the people in new york and up and down the atlantic seaboard. i don't doubt that the republicans care about our fellow americans too. but it's not just a matter of private charity. government has to be a part of this. government has to play an important role, and i think that this is a decision point. you know because people might say it's not right to make politics out of this, but let's face it, we're making a political decision in a few days and this is exhibit-a in which way this should go in my mind. >> eliot: it's about the debate in the role of government. >> right. >> eliot: this is what we should be doing, in context of this that frames what the are. as you pointed out private charity cannot deal with the enormous arm of suffering nor can charity build the infrastructure that we need to prevent it, whether it's a levy or subway

on one's annual savings- it is not on the income, it is not a tax, rather, it is a really just obligation for sharing the wealth with those who do not have it from those who have it and who have savings. so it has a different rate according to different kinds of wealth- for example, the gold, the silver- so there are different ways upon each thing. but finally, when we put it in currency terms, it is two and a half percent on your savings in which the whole year has passed- you have to give that to the poor, to the needy, to the orphans. so all the rate categories really are defined, so it is not that you can spend whatever you like- now there is different categories you must have spent. and the fifth pillar is the performance of the pilgrimage- once in a lifetime, visiting, or a pilgrimage to mecca. and this is again in a prescribed month, which is the twelfth month of the muslim calendar. and there are ten days of that month one has to go and- again, this is obligatory upon those who can bear both the traveling physically as well as financially; in other words, they are not b

millionaires' taxes, but raises yours. he'll voucherize medicare... and make catastrophic cuts to education. so remember what romney said... and what his plan would do. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message. >>> the rush is on to save years of medical research threatened by hurricane sandy. many hospitals in the new york city area lost power in the storm. lab samples thawed out when refrigerators and freezers in those hospitals stopped working. floods killed 2,500 lab mice used to study seizures. scientists say the storm could also impact studies in cancer, heart disease and diabetes. >>> thousands of people in new york city are still feeling the impact of hurricane sandy. aft actor alec baldwin and his wife live there, and went home to help their neighbors stranded in their homes. >> in our building, you can assume that people who are elderly can't go up and down the stairs to go get meals, water, any prescriptions, even if they could get them, walk their dogs. so we volunteered to come today to stand by for a couple of hours, especially during the mealt

, might be able to get assistance not so much loans and grants, but maybe something like tax breaks, whether that be property tax breaks, whether that be business tax breaks or something like that. so, that's the kind of thinking i think that's been going on in the japantown area. easily can be extended to western soma. and, so, another idea was that both western soma, of course, and japantown want to continue to move forward. i said, you know, it would be really great if the communities could get together. talk to supervisor kim outside, about the common needs and kind of ideas now emerging through the j-town effort and how that could be applied in the broader sense not only in western soma, but i think there is interest in the mission. and, so, i'm encouraging the supervisors to perhaps call some kind of summit or whatever you want to call it to maybe address this particular issue because it seems to be percolating up from below, really, at this point. so, thank you, jim, and everyone else in western some a. >> commissioner moore. >> i have a question for the director because i th

health care? dodd-frank put a complete chill on lending because of the uncertainty. tax policy, if you talk to any tax expert, really what you need are not temporary tax cuts, because no investor, no businessperson makes decisions based on the next few months, but you need a permanency and certainty. >> we will have certainty no matter what, though, right? when we get through the election, hopefully we have an answer to the fiscal cliff no matter what happens. >> i've actually full confidence if mitt romney gets elected and what i can't understand is anybody who thinks that the president, who said no to bowles-simpson, did nothing vis-a-vis the fiscal cliff, asked for a clean bill attached to the debt ceiling, how anybody thinks he can show some leadership and get that done when he's had four years to do it, i don't understand the logic. >> and he was the man that actually authorized and pushes bowles-simpson and then did nothing with it. >> you don't see romney embracing bowles-simpson at the moment either? >> i don't think he's embracing that but i think something similar to bowles-s
